THAT’S THE WAY TO DO THE COMRADES
STEVE WAY produced the best performance by a British runner at the Comrades Marathon last weekend since Mick Orton of Tipton Harriers won the race back in 1972.
Way, the UK M40 marathon record-holder, took third place in an event won by Bongmusa Mthembu of South Africa.
The historic 56-mile race this year took place on the ‘down’ course from Pietermaritzburg to Durban, with an entry field of 21,273 taking on the challenge.
Way scythed through the field in the closing miles to improve on his ninth place from last year, which was recorded on the ‘up’ course.
